I was introduced to the Philadelphia Children's Foundation as an alumnus of the Temple University Fox School of Business. This experience was ultimately very gratifying to me, as outlined in the blog post that I wrote about it. (http://patrocchi.blogspot.com/2011/03/talking-to-9th-graders-about-careers.html) I cam to realize that these bright young students may not have otherwise known about the career options they had ahead of them without exposure to my presentation. However, I was only the speaker; it was the PCF that drove this, as their coordinator, Carolyn Geers, offered me an array of locations where I could speak.

I have been honored to have the opportunity to support the important efforts of the Philadelphia Children’s Foundation. Everyone I have recommend to participate in their speaker programs have had very positive feedback on their involvement and praise for the program and Foundation itself. This is an organization that I hope will be supported for a long time to come as it is making a difference for our children and for our region.

I started my involvement with the PCF as a volunteer and liked it so much that I now serve on its Advisory Board. It has the potential to relate to so many of today's youth in so many ways. Book drives, career days, bookmobile, a work day visit at a company, and many other things both kids and their parents want their children to be exposed to. Look at the PCF website and pitch in and lend a helping hand. This organization rocks!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the reaction of teachers and counsellors to its approach to students of all ages; the awesome effect working within the organization has on the people who volunteer their time and energy to assist others; and the look on the childrens faces who have seen the information the PCF shares to allow them to "imagine the possibilities" this world has to offer to them.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try and get more local companies to participate and have visits to their locations and explain what they do and how they do it. Students need to see the actual dayd to day workings of the real world and this organization provides that important contact.

The work the Philadelphia Children's Foundation is doing with their Career Club Program in the Philadelphia School District is having a tremendous impact. It is important for young people to be able to see different careers and begin the life planning process. This program should be implemented throughout the city because career development is vital.

PFC staff are knowledgable, organized and caring. In carrying out their mission I met with students to assist in learning about presentation skills which will assist to increase career prospects. Being able to share information to the youth of the future takes just a small amount of time to make an impact. I look forward to a continued relationship with PFC and the growth of their organization.

PCF is a great non-profit that young students can only benefit from. They have extended their program to a few Philadelphia Public schools that are in high demand for people who care about the outcome of our youth. I believe this foundation will do great things for our inner city youth!

I volunteered at the Philadelphia Childrens Foundation for three months during the Summer. I helped with a book drive where this non-profit organization donated 1000 books to Dunbar Elementary School. I also helped with the expansion of PCFs career-centered website,which has age-specific pages connecting students to information and activities that fosters success. I went to a resource fair in which we handed out information about PCF so more and more Philadelphia residents can be aware of the helpful resource website PCF has. I also helped with PCF's annual regatta. The regatta was a fundraising event with proceeds going to the expansion of PCFs resource website and towarads the development of outreach programs. Philadelphia Childrens Foundation changes the lives of children, teens, and adults in Philadelphia everyday. I am very happy I had the opportunity to volunteer for them.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many different ways. I saw how happy the students were at Dunbar Elementary when they found out they were each going to get two books to take home that day.
